Top 10 MUST-SEE MUSEUMS OF THE WORLD. I will show you the top 10 museums you must wisit

#10 #9 #8

On the 10th place of top 10 museums is NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY MUSEUM in Athens. This is the place to admire the masterpieces of ancient Greece. Its unrivaled collection includes a bronze Artemision Podeidon from the 5th century B.C.


The 9th museum on the list is THE PRADO situated in Madrid. This treasure trove includes sculptures and drawing but the strongest collection is, naturally, of Spanish masterpieces by Goya, El Greco and Velazquez (whose Las Meninas is the best-known work of the museum).

Museum NO. 8 is THE VATICAN MUSEUMS in Rome. It's a series of exhibition spaces filled with priceless treasures that blow visitors away by their grandeur and beauty. The highlight is Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.

#7 #6 #5

On the 7th place is museum MOMA in New York. This is the most important modern art museum in the world. It covers the late 19th century to the present day, with highlights including Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon or Van Gogh's Starry night.


Museum #6 is THE MET - METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART in New York. These is truly outstanding museum with everything from Islamic, Egyptian, Greek, and Indian art to European paintings. It holds more than 2 million works from around the world, from pre-history to the 21st century.


On my list, on 5th place, is UFFIZI in Florence. This 16th century palace holds hundreds of masterpieces, including marvelous Renaissance sculptures and Botticelli's famous Birth of Venus, among other much-recognized masterworks of the Renaissance.

#4 #3 #2

Museum NO. 4 is THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM in Cairo. As you'd expect, here you'll find the most complete collection of Egyptian art in the world. Among the thousands of treasures (which includes the popular Mummy Room) are the famous artifacts from Tutankhamun's tomb.

On the 3th place of top 10 museums is THE BRITISH MUSEUM in London. This museum has millions of works of art from all over the world. Its galleries are devoted to Egypt, Greece, Roman civilization, Asia, Africa, and medieval Europe, tracing human history and culture. The highlight is the Elgin Marbles that once decorated the Parthenon in Athens.

On the 2nd place is museum THE HERMITAGE in St. Petersburg. This gigantic museum has the world's largest collection of paintings. It's a stunning place, covering the history of the world from the Stone Age to present times, and especially impressive are the Golden Rooms with their golden gems.

#1

The museum you must visit is THE LOUVRE in Paris. There are always long lines at the door but it's worth the wait to see the world's greatest and most famous museum. Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa is the star, but there are literally thousands of other treasures of human civilization, from Egypt, Asia, ancient Greece and Rome.
